Question: A successful visual or oral text is one in which a director seeks to create new realities and/or fresh perspectives for old ideas.

Undeniably, the visual text Shine is successful because the director, Scott Hicks, seeks to create new realities and fresh perspectives for old ideas such as love. Through his astute concoction of visual techniques such as: lighting and camerawork amidst verbal techniques such as dialogue and music Hicks portrays “…the power of love – both to destroy and to redeem.”

Shine follows the story of a piano virtuoso David Helfgott in his struggle to overcome the adversities caused by his father Peter in order to achieve his own dreams and ambitions of becoming a well-established musician by attending The Royal Academy of Music.

Shine is successful in the sense that the director, Scott Hicks, creates new realities for old ideas such as love by presenting the power of love to destroy. This is an interesting alteration to the old idea because it contravenes our superficial conception that love is completely constructive. The idea of the power of love to destroy is presented through the character of Peter. Peter is a very harsh and abrasive character: he is a Polish immigrant who now lives in Australia and has lived through the atrocities of the Holocaust. As a child he had his family taken away from him and the psychological after-effects of this horrid experiences is evident in his character. Peter is very over-protective of his family and obsessed with keeping his family close to him to fill the void this emotional suffering has caused. His dialogue is a blatant representation of his domineering personality as he constantly reminds his children and even makes them repeat after him that “No one will love you like daddy does.” In another scene, we see a CU shot of Peter behind a barbed wired fence which is a lucid symbol of the prison that he has created for his family to keep him close to him. This is ironic as he believes that “no one will love…” his family like him yet he is destroying his family on his own. A reoccurring motif that symbolizes Peters ignorance and domination were his glasses. We saw close-up shots of his glasses a couple of times but the most memorable scene was after David and Peter fought and David embraced Peter in a hug. During this time, a CU shot of Peter’s glasses revealed intense light shining onto it. This was interesting because the only light that was illuminating the room was a lamp. Hicks did this on purpose to symbolize the fact that Peter was blind and ignorant of everyone else due to his own desperate needs which in turn resulted in tragic outcomes. Hicks showed us the power of love to destroy because he wanted to disseminate the message that contemporary society, just like Peter, is blind to reality. This has a direct link to the teenagers contemporary society and myself personally. Hicks new reality of love through a teenagers perspective has enabled me to gain insight into my own life personally because just like David’s parents, my parents are also immigrants. I am still a teenager and I am trying to find myself amidst all the teenage drama and my parents come from a completely different society meaning that their ideals and values are completely different to mine. It gets very difficult to maintain my own individuality at home because the things I consider to be the norm in my perception is not always the norm for them. My parents, just like Peter, are very over-protective of me due to their previous experiences and inadvertently restrict me from being myself. Because Hicks’ creates these new realities and fresh perspectives about the outmoded idea of love, I am finally able to gain a deeper understanding about the true effects it may have on me as opposed to believing that every form of love is always constructive. Therefore, I believe that Shine is very successful in portraying the old idea of love and teaching us, as viewers, valuable lessons.

Shine is once again successful because the director, Hicks, creates another reality of love having the power to redeem. Contrary to Peters conditional and detrimental love, the character of Gillian represents love in a way that allows David to redeem himself after being destroyed by Peter’s repressive hand. In Gillian’s prelude with David, we witness the fact that Gillian is a clear contrast to Peter. She is accepting of David’s oddities and takes the time to listen to him as opposed to Peter’s abrupt “Get to the point.” Her patience and humbleness is also exemplified in a provocative two-shot with David as they are sitting down and reading newspapers in the bedroom. Another interesting technique about this shot was the framing and character proxemics: the framing was very loose and it seemed like David had a lot of space to breathe. This is a clear contrast to the shots we see David in with Peter where the framing is very tight and in some instances we only see literally half of David’s character in the shot. This symbolizes the fact that David is imprisoned and feels a sense of oppression when he is with his father but with Gillian this is not the case as he is free to be the person he wants to be. The character proxemics was another interesting technique because whenever Peter was in the shot, Hicks ensured that David’s character was always at or near the bottom of the frame which indicated subservience and Peter would always be near the top of the frame, again indicating authority. This notion was juxtaposed in the shots that contained both David and Gillian. Whenever we saw Gillian and David, we saw them both sitting close to each other and in the center of the shot. Gillian always came down to David’s level if he was sitting down. This, to me, symbolizes the fact that David is not insignificant or trapped when he is with Gillian: he is liberated and most importantly, he is an equal being. Hicks’ shrewd approach to the way he utilized the lighting was also very interesting because whenever David was with Gillian, the lighting was very natural and restrained symbolizing the healing process that Gillian has effectuated which was yet another clear juxtaposition to the ominously agitating low key lighting that underlined Peter’s role. another final form of juxtaposition we witnessed was the music. Gillian’s role in the film was underlined by the soaring major chords and string orchestra of Vivaldi’s Nulla in Mundo Pax in Sincera, a lucid contrast to the intensely passionate and menacingly mordant augmented notes of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto Number 3. Form this, Hicks wants us to learn the difference of conditional and unconditional love and what it can do to people. Hicks himself said that Shine is “A story about the power of love, both to destroy and to redeem.” Hicks is certainly successful in portraying a fresh perspective for the old idea of love and as a result the film Shine itself is very successful. Hicks used such a range of ideas and techniques because he wanted us as the viewer to fully understand the difference between conditional love and unconditional love and because of this, I was able to gain a deeper understanding of how people need support. We have all heard of the idiom “Behind every successful man is a woman.” This quote summarizes the lessons I’ve learnt from Shine quite clearly because Hicks has taught me that having support in your life is one of the most important things someone can have. I believe we are all like bridges: if we don’t have the support then we will not prosper and we will fall to our demise. Another key lesson Hicks has taught me is that if you have someone who loves you conditionally, then it is best to let them go because they will destroy you. Nonetheless, amidst all the negativity, there are always people that love unconditionally and will help you to redeem yourself. Therefore, I believe that Shine is a very successful visual text because the director, Hicks, uses the film as a medium to teach us very valuable lessons about life and reality of the negatives and positives of life.

Conclusively, Shine is a successful visual text because the director, Hicks, seeks new realities about the concept of love through the aforementioned techniques and teaches us, the viewer, about the reality of love and life in this process.…...

Shine & Kung Fu Hustle

...into his wonderful creations. Some attributes of Hicks directorial style demonstrated in my chosen visual text Shine include camera work, music, and the terrifyingly subtle use of lighting to develop the atmosphere and create apprehension in the audience. On the contrary, Stephen Chow’s ostentatious special effects, camera work, lighting and sound in Kung Fu Hustle in no way waned to present the same ideas and rivet the audience on to the end of their seats to witness the anticipated metamorphosis of antagonist to protagonist. In Shine, Hicks’ concoction of multiple cinematic techniques effectively portray the idea of the change and the transition from the suppression of the individual to the strength of the individual. Hicks’ use of specific techniques helps the audience learn more about Peters Authoritarian mindset and further develops the oppression felt by David’s character whilst portraying the idea of change. This enables the audience to understand the more complex underlying themes in the film and makes the audience more aware to the specific role of each character in the film and how they are all intertwined with each other at a deeper level. Consequently, it successfully challenges us, the audience, to consider how we might have felt in David’s situation and helps us draw conclusions about the nature of relationships and family dynamics. A scene, in Shine, that Hicks uses cinematic techniques, lighting, music/sound, symbolism and dialogue is scene ten where......

Arise and Shine Forth

...As you may know our theme as a stake this year comes from Isaiah 60:1. Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. I have been pondering that scripture for a few weeks now as I have prepared for speaking today. I have thought a great deal about the words “arise” and “Shine” and how they relate to me and my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In reference tot his scripture Elder Orson Pratt wrote: “The Zion that is here spoken of is called to ‘arise and shine, for the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.’ There is no one thing more fully revealed in the Scriptures of eternal truth, than the rise of the Zion of our God in the latter days, clothed upon with the glory of God from the heavens – a Zion that will attract the attention of allthe nations and kindreds of the whole earth. It will not be something that takes place in a corner or on some distant island of the sea, or away among some obscure people’ but it will be something that will call forth the attention of all people and nations upon the face of the whole earth.” Again, as I read that quote from Elder Pratt I thought of it in connection with my own testimony of the gospel. His description of the rise of Zion and the attention that it will draw, along with the words arise and shout, speak to the way we, as members of this church, with knowledge of a risen Lord and a true Zion, should feel about our testimonies and sharing them with the people around us.

Vmware Essay

...Robert W. Morley NT1210 October 20, 2012 Week 5 Essay VMware has been the market leader in virtualization products for many years now. Microsoft with their “slow but steady” pace in the field has defiantly taken some major leaps and bounds in their offerings to the world of virtualization now. The two solutions that shall be discussed here are VMware’s vSphere 5 and Microsoft’s Hyper-V. While both are great products, and share many of the same basic capabilities, pricing and limitations on said capabilities is what will ultimately separate these two from one another. VMware as stated above has been the industry leader for years when it came to virtualization whether on a single workstation or across an entire network. It has a very easy and logical interface that can be quickly learned by most in a very short time, assuming that the proper networking, deployment, and OS knowledge is already present. VMware’s vSphere 5 does have pricing attached to it, opposed to Microsoft’s Hyper-V which is free and integrates seamlessly into current Window OS configurations. The price for management is not free on either however, and this is where VMware seems to shine with its lower pricing structure. VMware does also offer a bundle/kit pricing where Microsoft does not currently offer that option for the Hyper-V. Virtual migration features will be the next biggest contrast between these two virtualization giants. VMware offers automated live migrations, power management, and......

The Hays Essay

...LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY The Hays Essay Submitted to Dr. John Mclean, in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of the course OBST 515– D03 Applying Old Testament Laws Today by Derrick Burney November 6, 2014 Christian and the Old Testament Laws (1) J. Daniel Hays approach is to give a principle factor to the Old Covenant laws which makes them practical for today’s believers. Hay’s believes that the New Covenant takes believers up from under the rules of the Old Covenant Laws (Romans 7:1-6), except when the laws have been restated by Jesus. One of the laws Hays gives from the Old Covenant laws which he use as an principle in today’s practical purpose is “Thou shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14). Hay’s believes when Jesus stated “You have heard the commandment that says, you should not commit adultery”. But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Mathew 5: 27-28 NLT). Hay’s believes since Jesus restated this law in the New Testament that makes it a practical law for today’s purposes. My understanding of the article is we have to understand the differences between the Old Covenant laws and the New Covenant laws. Believers must understand through Jesus teaching which ones are to be practical for today’s living purposes. Reconciliation of the Old Testament (2) When you look at the scripture Jesus states,......

When Light Shines on Literature

...When the Light Shines on Literature The Enlightenment Era is a period of philosophic and scholarly excitement which took place globally in the early eighteenth century. In a historical context, the American Enlightenment led to the American Revolution, American Independence, and the creation of the Constitutional Republic of the United States America (Bailyn 26-27). Influenced by those of the European Enlightenment, such as John Locke and Isaac Newton, and fueled by the colonist’s growing frustrations with the English Crown, the literary soil of the New World was a fertile garden. From this newly enriched land sprung both flowers of poetry and the nutritious fruits of the realistic pen that were deeply inspired by the American Enlightenment. The literature of the Enlightenment period was powerful indeed, as it motivated people to think and to take action. Two superlative examples of American Literature and the influences of the Enlightenment Era are Philip Freneau’s poetry and Thomas Paine’s prose. The influence of enlightenment ideas is in the works of both of these important literary figures. Philip Freneau was the poet of the American Revolution (Bowen 213). From Freneau’s naturalistic poetry, such as “The Wild Honeysuckle, we can see the Enlightenment idea that nature is a revelation of God that holds instructions for mankind. “The Wild Honeysuckle" was America's first major poetic account on the themes of life and death. The poem begins by discussing the types of......

...his essay by describing consumers and their want for low prices then describes sweatshops and their conditions. The problem he identifies is consumers demand lower prices to do this, corporations cut the cost on their employees either decreasing their wages or worsening their working conditions. Ravisankar assumes his readers are poor college students looking for lower prices and have a basic understanding of what a sweatshop is but does not fully know the appalling conditions of sweatshops. His purpose in this essay is to raise awareness of the degrading environment of sweatshops. In order to accomplish this purpose, he appeals mainly to pathos an appeal to emotions by mentioning how bad sweatshop working conditions are and its consumer’s. He also appeals to logos when he writes that people should have equal rights as others like pay. In this essay, Ravisankar addresses the main argument against his thesis the idea that the big companies like Nike, Reebox, and Gap are to blame for decreasing conditions in sweatshops. He refutes this argument by saying these companies are taking apart of “the race to the bottom” the pressure for low costs. Finally, he concludes by making the point that universities purchase around $3 billion in clothing with the universities name on it. This puts pressure on the companies to provide living wages and reasonable working. Overall, the argument Ravisankar makes is ineffective although he does an excellent job bringing up the topic and shine a......
